A minor classic in steam marine engineering
Sennett and Oram's "Marine Steam Engine" went through many editions. Be aware that the later editions simply carried across older technology shown in the earlier editions such as this one. Despite some useful snippets, I don't favour this text quite as much as Bauer or Seaton, because it stops short of full detail. It also has a bias toward naval rather than mercantile practice, but if naval is what you are after, maybe this is for you. The digitisation here is excellently done.
